Mark Johnson has done it again.

The former Olympic gold medalist and one-time Devil won a second consecutive national title as coach of the University of Wisconsin Badgers women’s ice hockey team with a 4-1 victory over Minnesota Duluth in the championship game at Lake Placid, N.Y. on Sunday.

Wisconsin (36-1-4) came in as the top seed in the NCAA Div. I tournament thanks to a 26-game unbeaten streak, and 12 consecutive victories to cap the season. Its only loss was to Minnesota Duluth on Nov. 24.

Johnson, who scored two goals in the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team’s upset of the Soviet Union, spent five seasons with the Devils from 1985-86 to 1989-90.

Johnson scored 89 goals and 140 assists in 305 games as a Devil, and notched the winning goal in game two of the Devils’ Patrick Division semifinal series against the Islanders in 1988.

The women's hockey team is the first UW program to repeat as NCAA champions since women's cross country won titles in 1984 and '85.
